These days, taking some much-needed time out from the harried pace of city life doesn’t mean you have to leave all your favorite modern conveniences behind. At Tagaytay Highlands, upscale living is just as much of an attraction as the spectacular view of the postcard-perfect Taal Lake and Volcano and the perennial cool, crisp mountain weather.


Situated on a 1,300-hectare property some 60 kilometers south of Manila, Tagaytay Highlands makes for the ultimate home away from home—with a selection of premier communities found in this exclusive recreational and residential paradise.


Woodlands Point is the property’s single-detached 12-hectare community that boasts pleasant weather all year round plus stunning views of the country club, Laguna de Bay, the Canlubang countryside and the verdant Tagaytay ridge.


The view is just as breathtaking inside: take your pick from a classic 3-bedroom home and luxury 4-bedroom affair. Inspired by the rustic charm of American log cabins, Woodlands Point’s version of the country home includes handsome interiors, red cedar accents on walls and staircases, engineered wood flooring, and tasteful glass and wood details. Termite control and log protection by way of a fuss-free, state-of-the-art reticulation system ensures that your cozy getaway will still be around for years to come.


If your aesthetic leans towards more Asian sensibilities, consider Sycamore Heights. Nestled in a gently sloping terrain, this prime subdivision of Tagaytay Midlands embraces Asian contemporary architecture, a style aptly complemented with an abundance of sprawling parks, lounging gardens, playgrounds and other wide, open spaces that encourage families to spend more time in the great outdoors.

Sycamore Heights homes infuse natural wood and stone into minimalist interiors, as well as features designed to welcome the outdoors. Besides bringing in sunlight and a cool mountain breeze, massive windows reveal awesome views of the Midlands Golf Fairway to the north, the calm Taal Lake to the south, the majestic Taal Volcano and Lake to the southwest, and the gully and mountainside to the east and west. Relaxing lanais and balconies also act as extensions to lush landscapes and the clear blue sky.


All homes are equipped with power supply, independent and unlimited water supply, and access to WiFi Internet broadband network. The community also has its own firefighting team, 24-hour medical service and round-the-clock security at its disposal.


Appropriately, luxurious mountain living comes with access to a slew of world-class recreational facilities. Tagaytay Highlands residents have access to two golf clubs—the Highlands Golf Club and the Midlands Golf Club—as well as the Country Club with its mini golf course, swimming pools and fishing pier.
